ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department and EMS responded to a wreck on South Westover Boulevard Sunday afternoon.

It happened in front of Greater Grace Church of God in Christ around 2:45 p.m.

According to APD, Nicholas Green, 19, was driving north on South Westover Boulevard when he was shot by an unknown person. 

Police said Green then crashed into a tree in the 300 block of South Westover. 

The shooter was reportedly in a gray town car, according to police.

Green was taken to the hospital and treated for a gunshot wound to his arm. 

WALB spoke with a resident in the area who says he doesn't normally hear about these kinds of events happening in the neighborhood. 

"That's the first time I've heard about that in this area, but it's sad to know that a person can be riding down the street and get shot," said Lawrence Jones, an Albany resident. 

If you have any information on this case you are encouraged to call Albany Police.
